Morning Debriefing 6/6/11

1) Louis CK dropping in at the Frolic Show.  You’ve got to wonder if he’ll come up with a bit about trendy Asian Restaurants after this.

2) The LA Improv Comedy Festival @ iO West starts today! (Yes, we reported yesterday that said festival would start today, but many people, when not reminded, think, “I remember that was supposed to start some time this month.” We’d like to try to avoid this for such events)

3) Jimmy Pardo’s Never Not Funny Podcast Season 9 is here!!!

4) Jon Stewart’s Ratings are Higher Than Fox News [via ManintheMittle (via PoliticusUSA)]

5) Why you never miss the monthly sketch barrage known as the Midnight Show at UCB Theatre [via LiezlWasHere].
